Welcome to Doug’s Page!

Why I Joined the Team

My name is Doug Mulford, I graduated from Danial Hand High in Madison CT in 2003. I feel very lucky to have been given the life I have and the advantages of being from an affluent community. So, after high school I decided I wanted to give something back and joined Americorps. After doing government run community service for a year I had learned what a difference we can make if we get active about helping others. Recently I completed my education through the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) where I discovered a love for the wilderness. This is my way of combining these two passions. My hope is that by taking this journey we will not only be able to help the charity, but also inspire others to have adventures of their own!
As a member of Team Hole in the Wall, I am using my participation in the Camp Challenge program as a way to raise funds for and bring awareness to Hole in the Wall Camps. Please help me reach (or even exceed!) my goal by clicking on my Support button. With your generosity, we can all share in the joy of knowing that we are helping to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Every summer at Hole in the Wall Camps, hundreds of children become athletes and actors, painters and poets, swimmers and singers, clowns and canoe paddlers, naturalists, equestrians, and hot air balloonists. It is amazing what these campers accomplish in one week; just as amazing are the obstacles they overcome on a daily basis, for these children suffer from serious illnesses such as cancer, sickle cell anemia, HIV/AIDS, and hemophilia. Camp helps keep them going – throughout the many challenges of serious illness.
Since 1988, Hole in the Wall Camps have served more than 135,000 campers* with more than 150 specific medical conditions from all 50 states and 39 countries, free of charge. Hole in the Wall Camps were the dream of actor Paul Newman, who started the first camp in Connecticut. Learn more about the camps.
